I made an appt for 2nd opinion , my 95 yrold mother was told her leg needed to be amputated. On the day of the appt I called & was told it was cancelled,no authorization, then 5min laterwas told they did get it, but her appt was cancelled, I went through many hours of trying to get another opinion, only to end up with a bill for a transportation bus I now didn't need. But also critical time wasted and no opinion. Their incompetence cost my mother the need for another opinion, I could of got.c

Came to Dr. Tapper's office for varicose vein treatment. Wait time is usually less than 10 minutes. He explains information well and is kind and courteous. The results were even better than expected. The procedure was painless. I didnt even experience any pain that they said I might have. No complications!!

Dr Tapper, is the best!! My husband had a blockage in his foot and he came in on his day off to do the surgery needed. Dr Tapper, is a caring Doctor and still has a passion for medicine.

I've been reading articles by a Dr in PBG who stressed not to ignore leg pain & swelling. I called to make an appt with Dr Tapper. I was asked why & tried to explain leg pain,was cut off & asked if veins were protruding or spider veins. I said I have some spider veins but before I could finish I was cut off again, told no need to see Dr, my ins didn't cover it, it was $300 for 30 min. I again tried to explain the pain & wish to see Doc. NOPE! Non-M.D. phone diagnosis? To PBG Doc I go!
